Mae, It sounds like you may need a new thermocouple and maybe your pilot needs cleaning. If you are mechanically inclined, you can remove the old thermocouple and take it to Home Depot or Lowe's an they can fit it to a new one. To clean the pilot, you will need a can of air used for electronic equipment. Remove the pilot assembly and shoot a stream of air through where the gas line was hooked to it. This will dislodge any debris caught in the orifice. Do not shoot the air from the pointed end as it will blow out the pilot orifice and you will never find it. Using a soft wire brush or stiff tooth brush, scrub all other pilot components and make sure there is no carbon build up an anything.
Hope this helps!
